Armonite - The Sun Is New Each Day (2015)

The second album from this Italian band.

Armonite is a duo with a lineup of electric violin and keyboards.
They had help from a quartet who did the bass, drums, cello and drums programming.
Colin Edward from Porcupine Tree did the bass here.

I reviewed their 1999 debut album Inuit back in July 2011 for ProgArchives and liked that album. The band has also released a third album and I may get that album one day.

The music on this album is eclectic instrumental progressive rock with more than a hint of RPI and Arabian & North-African music.

There is also some chamber rock.... make that a lot of chamber rock in their music. This is essentially a chamber rock duo.

Confused ?

The music is pretty melodic though and not overly eclectic.

It is also good with a lot of interesting details. Mainstream prog, it is not, though.

It is still a good album and well worth checking out. Something I would suggest you do.
